Leather Cuisse & Thigh Armor

Like its historical analogue, the cuisse armor that you will find here at Dark Knight Armoury offers superb protection to the thigh. Of course, you will not find only cuisse pieces here, but all sorts of great leather armors that are perfect for protecting the thigh and the upper leg, ensuring that, as a warrior, you have right where you want it. What made cuisses armor distinctive was that it formed an overlapped defense. The skirt of a hauberk or a tasset also existed to protect the thigh and upper leg, but could only do so from a downward strike. The cuisse filled the void and provided protection to the same part, but from all angles. Many of the cuisses armors and tassets that we offer here are crafted from 13-15 oz leather, which is armor grade that provides great protection, making it the perfect choice to wear when you are looking for leather armor fit for SCA or reenactment, although it also makes a great armor for LARP battles, costuming, and theater, too. Others, including some of our tasset belts, are crafted from lighter weight leather, like 7-8 oz leather or 9-10 oz leather, which is thinner and more suited for use as LARP armor. Some of our cuisses even feature an attached knee cop, also known as a poleyn, which keeps your knee safe from harm, too. We offer a variety of tassets and tasset belts, some of which are stand-alone and can be worn without harnesses. Looking to protect your upper legs and thighs when you go into battle? Then you will definitely want to pay a visit to us here at Dark Knight Armoury, where you will not only find stylish and effective leather cuisse and thigh armor, but also excellently priced armor that will keep you protected without breaking the budget.
